[January 29, 2014]  At the club's Jan. 22 weekly meeting, Don Jordan was named the Lincoln Rotary Member of the Quarter for October-December 2013. Jordan is being recognized for his continued leadership in the club's annual citrus sale. He is the highest seller each year, in addition to organizing, coordinating and leading the sales by the other members of the Lincoln Rotary.

Jordan is employed at Graue Inc. as the courtesy shuttle driver. His wife, Shirley, also works at Graue. Don retired as general manager of the J.C. Penney store in downtown Lincoln.

He joined the Rushville Rotary Club in March 1969 because it was a club of fellow business people and it allowed him to get to know and interact with people with the same interests. He joined the Lincoln Rotary in January 1975 when he transferred to the Lincoln Penney's store.

Jordan said his favorite part of Rotary are the projects where all Rotarians work together to raise funds to further the mission of the organization to serve others and to place service above self. He said those projects and their results help all of us prove the existence of our being.

When he's not at Graue or dealing with Rotary citrus, he enjoys following the University of Louisville Cardinals (his grandson, Josh, is the manager of the football team), the St. Louis Cardinals and the Lincoln Railers boys basketball team. He also enjoys collecting coins.
